When I close my eyes and think of my man taking me in his arms and passionately kissing me, I imagine us in a movie where the camera pans away to the beautiful star-filled sky and the time lapses and we see the bright early morning sunrise illuminating the earth. Sounds sweet and cheesy, right?
Yeah, well, it’s all roses and romance until this same magical image involves my 14-year-old son and some girl wanting him to make her feel like a woman. I gasp and my mind goes blind from the thought.
Teen sex is only mildly cute and humorous when scripted in the movies. At the risk of dating myself, I think back to Cooley High, when a fight breaks out at a “make out party.” Or any 80’s movie where Molly Ringwald somehow becomes the must- have girl and always finds the conviction to save herself until the time is right. These movies set up us parents—and especially single moms—to fail. Because they delude us into thinking our teenage kids are automatically going to know to say “no,” or something comical is going to happen to stop them from doing the do.

During one of the worst economic times in the country’s history, 30-year old Ash Cash has decided to take a leap of faith and quit his six figure job as a bank manager to pursue a dream of becoming an entrepreneur and teaching financial literacy. Born and raised in a single parent household in the St. Nicholas projects in Harlem, it was believed by Ash and most of his peers that they would be dead or in jail by the age of twenty-five. Somehow through faith, family support, hard work and sacrifice he was able to avoid both.
With more than ten years of banking experience, Ash was able to work his way up the ranks from teller to personal banker, private banker and branch manager. Throughout his career he managed a book of 400 affluent clients with assets ranging from $100,000 to $22 million, coached and trained over 100 sales professionals, opened and managed six branches and brought in almost $90 million in deposits. Today he is an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and the author of Mind Right, Money Right: 10 Laws of Financial Freedom. He works with city agencies and organizations and teaches financial literacy in churches, colleges, and to undeserved, at risk, and incarcerated youth. Simply put, Ash is on a mission to Financially Re-Educate Every Spectrum of Humanity.
Ash believes that the biggest problem in the community, as it pertains to money, is that “we spend money we don’t have to buy things we don’t need to impress people we don’t like.” Read more…
